It was wet but Josh Figgins and Matt Odd played through the rain to win the Fry Healthcare Foundation’s 9th Annual Golf Tournament held on Friday, June 16, at Mirror Lake Golf Course in Bonners Ferry.

The players “Tee’d” off to a shotgun start at noon and played 18 holes of golf, sometimes in monsoon conditions. Travis Delaney and Scott Rynearson captured second place with third place taken by Dick Staples and Dave Anderson. Longest Drive for Men was Travis Delaney, and Longest Drive for Women was Wendy Hawks. Bill Gutnecht made the Longest Putt and Jamie Porter was Closest to the Pin. No one managed to make a Hole-in-One on hole #8 which was sponsored by Boundary Tractor, although several made it to the green.

Sponsors for the tournament included Idaho Forest Group, Yellowstone Insurance Exchange, Gardiner Prime Angus Ranch, Blanche Studer and Elaine Morgan, Edward Jones Investments, Craig and Donna Johnson, J.B.’s Tire and Automotive, Fousts Inc. Logging Contractors, E-Enterprises, and Riverside Auto Center.

Auburn Crest Hospice, Janice Claridge and Rick Lozoya, Selkirk Press, Bonners Ferry Living Local, Super 1 Foods, Ralph Lotspieck, Boundary Electric and Dixon Golf provided donations and prizes.

Life Flight Network and Pro-X Home Center donated a Traeger Grill that was awarded to Cathy Thaxton, the winner of the Great Golf Ball Drop.

The funds raised at this year’s tournament will be used to purchase a Nu-Step Recumbent Cross Trainer for the Rehabilitation Services Department at Boundary Community Hospital. According to Petra Timmermans, PT “The Nu-Step Trainer is wonderful for early rehabilitation of knee and hip surgeries because it allows for small movements, unlike a stationary bike where the knee and hip have to be able to flex over 90 degrees to make a full revolution. Patients are in total control of the movement and especially after surgery, it decreases the fear of pain. They are able to gradually increase the range of the movement at their own pace.” Over the past 20 years, the Fry Healthcare Foundation and our community have raised more than $1.2 million to benefit the hospital. We are very grateful for your continued support that ultimately benefits everyone who relies on Boundary Community Hospital for emergency and routine care.
